This article is about Buffer from RedPower 2. You may be looking for Buffer (TubeStuff).

The Buffer is a RedPower 2 block with a function and appearance similar to a normal Chest, with a square on the "lid" side. It has a 20 slot inventory displayed as 5 striped columns in the GUI.

Usage[edit]

A Pneumatic Tube or Pipe connected to the Buffer's lid side will behave the same as for a normal chest, placing or retrieving items in any available slot. When connected to any of the other 5 sides however, a Tube/Pipe will see an independent 4 slot inventory corresponding to one of the columns. Any interaction this way can not affect the contents of the other columns, so this can be used to reserve space for multiple item types in a single output (e.g. for an Autocrafting Table). In the opposite direction it can be used to distribute items from one input among several outputs like a Diamond Transport Pipe would, though this is much more difficult to set up as only vanilla Minecraft logic controls where the incoming items end up.
